Tami Tamaki, ‘Despicable’ (2016) video

, 28 January 2016

Berlin-based producer Tami Tamaki has dropped a new track and video, called ‘Despicable’ on January 27.

The song comes accompanied by a liner note on the Swedish artist’s YouTube account announcing “I made a pop song about a disgusting ex and I made a video where I’m making out with myself mmmm”. It features an EDM-style thrust with typically candid lyrics delivered in Tamaki’s signature autotune comparing said ex to a tumour and other similarly unfavourable adjectives over superclub sounding samples and a poppy chime beat.

The ‘Despicable’ video presents a diorama of tinsel and flower beds, and a sponge-y heart balloon being squeezed out of shape in a kaleidscope view of several Tamaki heads mirroring, and sometimes making out with themselves.

The video release follows the viral success of the artist’s 2013 track ‘I Never Loved This Hard This Fast Before’ that made the soundtrack of Ester Martin Bergsmark’s 2014 romance Something Must Break and recent performances in New York and London.
